Queen Elizabeth’s grandchildren gather for a vigil in Westminster Hall on Saturday as mourners passed through and paid their respects, Prince Andrew, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not attend State Reception for the Queen at Buckingham Palace, Report Says.s late
TheNewsGuru.com gathered that despite earlier reports that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were invited to a State Reception of World Leaders on Sunday, only working members of the royal family have been invited.
The couple received an invitation to the event, hosted by Harry’s father King Charles III, and Queen Consort Camilla, earlier this week.
However, the publication reports that royal aides “insisted” Harry and Meghan were not invited and not expected to make an appearance.
The pair won’t attend after the palace officials said the reception is “for working members of the royal family,” according to a source.
Representatives for Buckingham Palace and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not immediately respond to request for comment.
Harry and Meghan’s relationship with the royal family has been described as tense since they stepped back as senior royals in 2020.
They joined Prince William and Kate Middleton to view floral tributes to the Queen on September 10, but it’s unclear if the promenade around Windsor Castle is a sign of reconciliation.
Prince Andrew and his daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, who are not working royals, will also not be at the reception.
However, Prince Andrew’s daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, released their first public statement since the death of the queen, saying it has been the honor of their lives to be her granddaughters.
The princesses said in a statement:”We, like many, thought you’d be here forever. And we all miss you terribly. For now dear Grannie, all we want to say is thank you.
“Thank you for making us laugh, for including us, for picking heather and raspberries, for marching soldiers, for our teas, for comfort, for joy. You, being you, will never know the impact you have had on our family and so many people around the world.”
